Schwinn Fastback- should I/shouldn't I(2 posts)

Schwinn Fastback- should I/shouldn't ISlick21

Hi,
Does any one ride a Fastback. I'm thinking of getting the Fastback Factory. I'm 6'0", 172 lbs. I usually do 30-50 mile rides on. How does it handle? How much do you weight, and your measurement? What size do you ride? Do you have any problem with the headset, since its integrated? How would warranties be handled since Schwinn is owned by Pacific?

Thanks

I am 5'8", 150 lbs and usually ride > 50 miles a day, at least 3 times a week. I have had no problem with the fastback so far, especially after changing the stock seat (Sella Italia Flite Ti) to the TransAm Max (saddle is really a personal preference, so you might like the stock one). Considering the price you pay ($1199 at supergo.com), it is a steal. Just the componentry would cost more than the $1199 on sales price. Go get it, you won't regret on it.
